What We Publish Here


We run a small farm, raising cattle and sheep, aiming for sustainable and environmental-friendly biological ways.

As a rural place, you don’t need to walk much for some common species birdwatching in Fajãzinha.

The rich rural architecture heritage of Fajãzinha, in a new project hopefully coming up soon…

Farm routines lead us to walk most of the caminhos (trails) with some images and stories along the way.
